Online English tests during COVID-19
We acknowledge the difficulties experienced worldwide in taking the compulsory language test, due to the Covid-19 situation. An alternative English test can be the TOEFL iBT Special Home Edition test (online test). This test is accepted by UT and is available everywhere that TOEFL iBT testing is normally available, with the exception of Mainland China and Iran.
Please note that the only online English language test that is accepted at UT is the TOEFL iBT Special Home Edition. Other online English language tests (i.e. IELTS Indicator test, Cambridge online test, etc.) will not be accepted(!).
If you lack computer experience we strongly advise you to follow basic courses in your home country.
